Peso Pluma

Peso Pluma is at the top of the world; many love him, and others hate him; however, his rapid success has been unmatched. The Mexican musician has achieved success after success in a very short period and is currently the most listened-to artist worldwide.

His full name is Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija and some internet users claim that it is his first surname that is responsible for getting him to where he is, as there is a theory that the musician’s family is paying for his fame thanks to the economic power they have in Mexico.

Who Is Peso Pluma’s Family?

The singer has been very reserved with information about his family and rarely talks about them. In fact, he doesn’t talk about them at all. However, Internet users don’t want to be left in doubt, and a TikTok user took on the task of investigating Hassan’s family tree.

The Kabande surname belongs to one of the wealthiest families in Mexico; the one in charge of founding the Lucerna hotels, located in the north of the country.

Could Peso Pluma’s Family Be Linked to Cartels?

According to the Tiktoker, after following the family tree, one of the heirs of the hotels would have been related to Carlos Hank Gonzalez, former governor of the State of Mexico in 1975.

This politician would have been related to cartel leader Amado Carrillo Fuentes, who was one of the most dangerous in the United States, even in 1999 the Washington Post published that a ‘prominent’ Mexican family was a threat to the country and pointed to the Hank family as participants in a network of drug trafficking and money laundering.

The Ties to Organized Crime and Peso Pluma’s Family

According to the TikToker, the Kabande family was also linked to PRI politicians and there is information that points to the relationship of Hector Kabande (one of the three heirs of the hotels) with kidnappers and cartels.

In addition, these documents claim a relationship between the Kabande family and the dangerous kidnapper José Luis Escudero Escandón, and it is also said that one of Héctor’s daughters has two children with one of the Arellano Félix criminals. Héctor Kabande was arrested in 1995 in California, United States, for his relationship with Benjamín Arellano Félix and reportedly paid two million pesos bail to regain his freedom.

Fame or Contacts?

The Internet user put forward the theory that Peso Pluma’s fame is due to the power of his millionaire family, especially because it is a worldwide success that was born overnight. Some users support the theory that, in reality, Peso Pluma grew due to drug trafficking and crime, but others consider it false and that it is fame earned with hard work and effort.

The truth is that Peso Pluma makes no mention of his family, and even his mother’s name is unknown, although she has been seen in photographs supporting her son. So far, we do not know if this theory is true or not, and if Hassan has any relationship with dangerous cartels; what we do know is that at a young age, the singer has achieved in a short time which many artists take years.

Peso Pluma represents Mexico in international charts and has become the most listened-to musician in the world.
